Hudson Valley Family Portrait Session

The Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park is such a beautiful estate. It is the perfect location for family portrait sessions and looks lovely in the winter! After taking a few photographs at the mansion, we spent the rest of the afternoon wandering around the formal gardens. Cool weather is no reason not to schedule a portrait session. This little guy turns one year old next week and since they grow so fast, why wait?

A Hudson Valley First Birthday Party

How cute is this first birthday party? I love all the adorable details this mom put together. The wintery pink theme is perfect for January. And I especially love the photo banner she created with a photograph of her little one at age one month through twelve months.

An Edison Christening

It was such an honor to photograph this Christening at St. Matthew's Church in Edison, New Jersey. It is the first of many significant days in this little baby's life and I am happy to have had the opportunity to capture it on "film". These moments are so important and as a photographer I love being able to help preserve the memory of them.
